Six Flags Fiesta Texas (SFFT) Discussion Thread

P. 288: New B&M Dive Machine Announced!

Recommended Posts

Then Ill say something... that beam thats not connected to the actual track section at the top... I mean, the concept of wooden coasters feeling like they are going to fall apart is a exciting, doing it at almost 80mph is insane, but doing it on a coaster thats not completed at the top...

Yes this drop has potential to be the best drop on a Coaster ever! It could even be the best Coaster of all time. Now I know it's hard to answer this question seeing the ride hasn't opened yet. But does anyone think this may have potential by what we have seen to be Amusement Today's #1 steel coaster? Since NTAG was reconstructed in now ranks #5 of all steel coasters on earth. Do you guys think Iron Rattler could beat Millennium Force for the #1 Coaster spot? By what I've seen I think it can!

I think it will be better than MF because i feel its not the best coaster, if it is even a top 10. I think depending on how this rides it should very well be up there in the top 10. Just looking at this screams this ride hauls a$$!

That depends more on how much money they are making from six flags than it does on how good the coaster is.

Hey Fiesta Texas fans! We are excited to announce THRILL SEEKER THURSDAYS! Every Thursday leading up to park opening we will post exciting news and updates for Fiesta Texas! Check out our new attraction, Slingshot standing tall at 187 feet! What do you think?

 

Looks like the one at Magic Mountain has some competition.

I'm not a fan of SF adding these slingshot carnival rides. They have really low riders per hour, aren't very enjoyable, and don't look very nice. That's just my opinion but I wish they had invested in another form of flat ride.

Iron Iron Rattler looks sick. As others have mentioned, the track really slithers like a snake! That first drop leaves me speechless.

 

The carnival slingshot rides are a different story... I find them incredibly ugly, especially this new trailer version. Yuck. It just doesn't go with all the other high-quality, permanent attractions.

They make money. They are a cheap investment for Six Flags and it brings them money in return.

They don't look that bad. I feel like a lot of you guys are comparing it to the look of SFMMs, which is undeniably ugly. However this is a different model. If SFFT hides the trailer well enough it will be fine. And like I said above, they bring in a lot of money for the parks. It looks like SFFT is buying it used, so they will get their ROI quicker than if they bought it new.

 

At SFNE it looks fine.

I don't think the slingshots are ugly, including SFMM's. They are an affordable way to add to the skyline of the park while using a small footprint and upcharging guests. It's all the rage. And how is a trailer model possibly more attractive than SFMMs, anyway?

 

iRat looks amazing. That drop is something else.

Yeah I was gonna say the same thing. When NTAG was re-tracked it won Best New Ride of 2011. I have a good feeling Iron Rattler will bring home the award in 2013!

You're serious? This ride is totally not better than Gatekeeper! Gatekeeper is at Cedar Point dammit!

 

Okay now i will NOT be a Golden Ticket Award member..

 

I totally agree with you that if this rides well (Thats what she said) it should be Best New Ride of 2013. To me Gatekeeper and Outlaw Run should be in there as well. I think Outlaw Run will be good, but not as good as this. All in all the top 3 new rides of next year, (IR,OL,GK) will all be very good rides, it just depends on how well they ride. This one just seems to have everything!

 

And come on, you really think the GTA's will not choose Gatekeeper as #1 New Ride? I think i said this a before on this thread that the GTA's get VERY horny over Cedar Point.
